To create a new Attribute, select Attributes from the Settings menu and click Create. Fill out the following information in the Attribute Basic Information form:

  • Select Attribute Type - choose String if the attribute will contain characters like gift messaging, or Boolean if the attribute is a simple yes/no or true/false option

  • Add Attribute Name - the attribute’s name

  • Price - the additional charge for things like gift wrapping or other special instructions from the customer

The Fulfillment section allows you to set priorities so that orders with multiple items can be split and fulfilled from one or multiple warehouses.

To create a new Fulfillment method, select Fulfillment from the Settings menu. Click the Add New button, give the fulfillment method a name, and click Save.

If an item in your inventory is available to ship from multiple warehouse locations, use the options in the Fulfillment Priority section to set whether the item:

  • Ships from the closest warehouse to the customer 

  • Ships from your own custom warehouse order priority. Use the drag-and-drop feature to rearrange the priority of fulfillment methods

Please refer to the Warehouse section for instructions on how to add a new warehouse and the Inventory section to see how to add and manage Inventory in OMS.

Use the headless API from OMS to build the orchestration for customers on the Product Listing, Product Description, and Checkout pages.
